HTC is all set for its MWC event planned for 1st March which they have titled as ‘Utopia Progress’. As per previous years patterns the company always announces their flagship at the event, last year it was HTC One (M8) and this year its successor, the much anticipated HTC One (M9) is expected to grace the event. HTC One (M9) had been in the news also courtesy of the various rumors and leaks as to what the device looks like. Now the latest info from @upleaks suggests that HTC will not be introducing one but two variants of the flagship at the event: HTC One (M9) and HTC One (M9) Plus.
HTC seems to following Sony’s and Samsung’s footsteps, as Sony introduces a compact variant with the flagship and Samsung in September’s event introduced Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge and is rumored to do the same at the MWC too. HTC does believe in getting all the limelight by getting out two devices. Well let’s see if there is any difference in the specifications and features of the devices that HTC is rumored to be working on for MWC.
HTC One (M9) Plus will sports a 5.2-inch, 1440 x 2560 pixel resolution display and HTC One (M9) will sport a 5-inch display with a 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution. A question does come to mind that if HTC was planning to get out two variants, why is there no discernible difference between the display sizes? According to one of renders seen HTC One (M9) Plus has a home button which the other variant does not have and it is equipped with a fingerprint scanner.
Apart from the difference in display size and the home button feature, both the HTC One (M9) variants almost share the same specifications. Both the devices will run on Android 5.0 Lollipop with Sense UI. HTC One (M9) Plus will be powered by a 64-bit quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor and HTC One (M9) will be equipped with a MediaTek chipset, accompanied by a 3 GB RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. A 20.7-megapixel main camera and most probably a 4/14-megapixel selfie-shooter will grace the devices. The devices will be powered by a 2840 mAh battery and BoomSound speakers will amplify the audio.
What do you think about these new developments, is it a good move on HTC’s part to introduce two HTC One (M9) variants or should the company have focused on quality instead of quantity and worked on one device. Let us know what you think.
